Bookshop Description: (Est. 1947)

East Grinstead Bookshop is the quintessential English book shop, full to the rafters of wonderful books, both new and secondhand, staffed by people who have chosen a business we are all passionate about. Sitting in the heart of Englands` longest street of timber framed buildings, Tudor House boasts many interesting features. Come and see its black and white beams, unique cork oak cladding, fascinating carved faces, is one really the head of Anne Boleyn and do we really have a ghost ? Come and soak up the history, enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in our little cafe, explore the nooks and crannies, browse our shelves, and who knows you might even buy a book or two, and help keep alive a real bookshop!

Opening hours:

Mon-Sat 9am-5.30pm, Sun 10am-4pm

All textiles begin with a twist. From colourful 30,000-year old threads found on the floor of a Georgian cave to what the linen wrappings of Tutankhamun's mummy actually meant; from the Silk Roads to the woollen sails that helped the Vikings reach America 700 years before Columbus; from the lace ruffs that infuriated the puritans to the Indian calicoes and chintzes that powered the Industrial Revolution, our continuing reinvention of cloth tells fascinating stories of human ingenuity.
When we talk of lives hanging by a thread, being interwoven, or part of the social fabric, we are part of a tradition that stretches back many thousands of years. Fabric has allowed us to achieve extraordinary things and survive in unlikely places, and this book shows you how -- and why.
Kassia St Clair takes us on the run with escaped slaves, climbing the slopes of Everest and moonwalking with astronauts. The Golden Thread offers an unforgettable adventure through our past, present and future.
